lost a net of two yards, and the
call was made for Miller.
The rest of the first quarter
settled down into a defensive
struggle, as the Bears prevented
the Wolverine offense from chalk-
ing up a first down.
Michigan, however, opened the
second quarter by gaining its in-
itial first down and proceeded to
reel off four more as it marched
from its own 29 to the Califor-
nia 17. But from there, the Wol-
verines were held to no gain on
three plays and Frank Titas was
called upon to attempt a 34 yard
field goal. The kick, however, was
wide to the left and California
was able to cling to its three-
Michigan closed out the scor-
ing in the first half by compiling
a touchdown on a 33 yard drive
capped by Ron Johnson's scoring
plunge. A 16 yard punt by Gary
Fowler had given the Wolverines
excellent field position, and Vid-
mir, sticking to the ground, pitch-
ed out twice in a row to Warren
Sipp for a total of 30 yards. And
on his third try from close yard-
age Johnson took the ball in.
Brian Healy was wide to the left
on the extra point and the half
ended with Michigan holding a,
6-3 lead. .
The story of the second half
can be wrapped up in those ten
seconds it took McGaffie to catch
up to the football and carry it
into the end zone.
Michigan had an excellent op-
portunity late in the fourth quar-
ter to put the game out of Califor-
nia's reach when linebacker Bob
Wedge recovered a Bear's fumble
on California's 19 yard line.
Johnson and Sipp were thrown
for no gain, but Vidmir hit Ber-
line for a gain of six. With force
and for, Elliott decided against
going for the first down and sent
Hankwitz in to make the 30 yard
"We had to go for the sure
three," Elliott observed after the
game. "We knew that a touch-
down and the point after would
beat us but we figured the de-
fense would hold them. You have
to count on your defense in a
situation like that. Besides, they
they had been doing a great job
all day long."
Not An Upset
Even though Michigan had
trotted out on the field as a
seven point favorite, Willsey re-
fgused to call the California vic-
tory an upset: "Before the ball
game I thought we were two
pretty equal teams so I don't
call this win as a surprise. I'm
sure this will go down as one of
our best defensive efforts, but
MICHIGAN'S RON JOHNSON grimaces as he struggles for one
extra inch of ground in yesterday's heartbreaking 10-9 loss.
Johnson got the extra yardage for a first down but the Wolverines'
fate rested finally on a Bear 71-yard TD pass.
The Longest Shot
By FRED LaBOUR
Special To The Daily
EAST LANSING - Southern
California narrowly defeated a
much-improved Michigan State
football team here yesterday 21-17.
The Trojans, rated number two
in the country last week, were
paced by the explosive running of
junior O. J. Simpson and the bril-
liant passing of quaterback Steve
Sogge. Simpson carried the ball
on nearly half of the total number
of plays that Southern Cal exe-
cuted, gaining 191 yards. Sogge,
managing his team's offense with
the skill of a seasoned pro, con-
nected on 14 out of 16 pass at-
tempts, to roll up 182 yards.
Coach Duffy Daugherty's Spar-
tans displayed an astonishing
amount of spirit and desire as they
bounced back from last week's
disastrous loss to Houston.
"We played with enthusiasm
and zest," said Daugherty after the
game. "I think everyone will agree
that this was a different Michigan
State team than you saw last
Southern Cal scored first in the
seesaw battle early in the first
Michigan State punted out of
bounds on Southern Cal's 29 yard
line, and Coach John McKay's of-
fensive unit raced into the fray.

seven plays with the ubiquitous

Rikki Aldridge converted.
The second quarter, surely one
of the most hectic unusual, and
confusing periods ever recorded on
a college gridiron, began inno-
cently enough with the Spartans
on their own 44 yard line. No one
suspected that the scoreboard,
which momentarily went berserk
and began showing Trojan scores
as Spartan and vice versa, was the
harbinger of things to come.
The fireworks commenced just
two plays later though, as State's

Just before the first half gun
went off, Southern Cal tried to
punt while deep in their own
territory. The ball was centered
over punter Aldridge's head and
he was forced to pick it up on
his 5 yard line. He immediately
stepped into the endzone giving
State an automatic two points
on the safety.
Daugherty explained that Ald-
ridge made a wise decision. "If
he hadn't stepped into the end
zone we would have gotten the
ball inside their 10 and chances
are we would have scored." He
just traded six points for two."
That was the end of State's
scoring for the afternoon.
Southern Cal took the second
half kick off and methodically
reeled off 74 yards in 11 plays to
score their last touchdown in a
drive McKay later termed, "the
turning point of the game."~
Simpson grabbed the Sogge
pitchout on State's 5 yard line,
faked toward the goal, stopped
short, and demonstrated his ver-
sitility by firing a perfect pass to
Jim Lawrence in the end zone.
Michigan State scored on
another pass in the third period,
but this effort was nullified by
an offensive interference penalty.

makes mistakes but he has the
speed to run away from them."
USC Coach John McKay, who
thinks Simpson is the best half-
back in the nation, said "I think
Simpson played rather well"
Which is like saying that there
is a rather tight race for the Am-
erican League pennant. "He had
a charley horse all week and
